Plesk Onyx extensions!

about Plesk · ·

I've been bored over the holidays and downloaded a free trial of Plesk Onyx. My expectations were low as control panels aren't the most exciting piece of software in the world. They do the job and make the life of an admin much easier but apart from that? I hate to say that I was totally wrong. Installation was easy and I liked the user navigation. Browsing the left hand side nav bar I landed on the extensions catalogue and here's where Plesk blew me away. The amount of extensions was already impressive and it allowed me to do so many different things, to customise the whole application, use all the cool dev tools, apply state-of-the art security settings and more. Honestly, folks.... after a couple of hours playing I got told off by the family to come back to the living room and could hardly believe I was really playing with a control panel. My absolute favourite is the 'Order Your Pizza' extension - engineering excellence combined with a good sense of humour is all we need to get our job done! Congratulations Plesk and keep up the good work. You have one new customer now.

Plesk Onyx is the best ever version released!

I'm using Plesk starting from 10.4 - it was not so great honestly. But things changed. Starting from 12.0 Plesk became very stable and Plesk Onyx is a WOW: Docker, Git, fail2ban, Let's Encrypt - all this staff helps me a lot to simplify server administration tasks.

Thank you Plesk for such a good job!

Using Plesk panel for ~8 years

The panel is very reliable in my opinion, I never needed any other features than what it has now.
It has nice styling and a good user interface.
Nice monitoring tools like "Health Monitor" that will show you what is happening on the server and what might slow it down. You will see CPU and memory usage separated by services (MySQL, Apache, etc).
Price seems to be much lower than cPanel, at least at my host and this is for Dedicated server, for VPS it is usually even lower.
